Weather forecast:
Another warm front is coming and will arrive on Tuesday, but for now just the corner of it is over Denmark. That means it will be cloudy all day. The wind will start as westerly and then because of the front will swing south-west, going from 270 degrees to 240. It could shift around a bit, as it tends to do in the Bay of Aarhus.

In summary, racing will begin in 8-10 knots westerlies, maybe building and swinging to 12 knot south-westerlies by the late afternoon, gusting upto 20 knots especially closer to shore.

Temperature: 19-24 ℃
Sea temperature: 20 ℃
